Millions of people across the country have had a positive experience when it comes to having plastic surgery performed. Plastic surgery is known to the medical community as a surgery that alters, corrects or restores a portion of the body form and function. Most plastic surgery procedures performed by expert plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Sadati involve transferring skin tissues and other body tissues from one portion of the body to another part of the body. Essentially, the plastic surgery field can be broken down into two main types: modification procedures and reconstructive procedures.
The goal of most reconstructive procedures is to return functionality to a certain portion of the body, or fix a medical issue associated with a particular body part.
Modification surgeries aim to address aesthetic issues — patients do not necessarily have physical medical reasons for desiring these surgical procedures. At Dr. Sadati’s Newport Beach practice, which services patients from all across Orange County, there are several common reconstructive procedures. The most common surgeries in this category are scar and laceration repairs, tumor removal, breast reduction procedures and hand surgeries. The most popular modification procedures include facelift procedures, nose job surgeries, tummy tucks and breast augmentations.
The most common procedures that are requested at Dr. Sadati’s practice are as follows:
LiposuctionThis popular cosmetic surgery option allows patients to have unwanted fatty tissue removed from problem areas on their body. Common areas where liposuction is performed include the buttocks, stomach, thighs, back of arms and even sometimes the neck. Dr. Sadati evaluates each patient as an individual, and sometimes it is safest to do several liposuction sessions before achieving the desired results.
Tummy TuckThe goal of this procedure is to bring back a patient’s flat, firm abdominal region. The surgeon will remove excess fat as well as excess skin. This process helps to restore the firmness to the abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck is commonly requested by patients who have undergone a major life change, such as significant weight loss or a pregnancy.
RhinoplastyThis plastic surgery is commonly called a nose job, and ultimately the goal of most rhinoplasty procedures is to improve the appearance of a person’s nose. However, Dr. Sadati often works to improve nasal functionality, as well. Patients are evaluated individually, and ethnicity, personality and personal preferences are taken into consideration.
Patients who are interested in these procedures or any other cosmetic surgery procedures can contact Dr. Sadati’s office at any time to set up a free consultation. At this appointment, patients will discuss their goals and desires with the surgeon and Dr. Sadati will work with the patient to craft a customized plan of action designed to achieve those goals.
